The Senate passed the Electoral Amendment bill on Thursday amid disagreement and rowdiness.

 

The amended bill now empowers the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Assembly “to determine the use (or not) of electronic transmission of results of elections”.

 

Specifically, the initially proposed amendment was changed from “the Commission may transmit

results of elections by electronic means where and when practicable” to:

 

“The commission may consider electronic transmission provided the national network coverage is adjudged to be adequate and secure by the Nigerian Communications Commission and approved by the National Assembly,” as proposed by the Senate Deputy Whip, Sabi Abdullahi.
